We are one of the premier groups in the Dallas Fort Worth Metroplex for those who enjoy playing spades.
Standard 10X+1 bidding , nil and 10-4-200 allowed, no sandbag penalty. For our complete rules see Spades Rules on our DFWspades website. Everyone joining the group agrees to honor these rules. You may ask players at any table to play by any variations from these rules but may not pressure anyone in any mannter to play by any variances from our official rules. This means no voting, no appeals to those at the table to pressure another player, no having "table rules" that someone is required to play by to sit at your table.
Our goals are to make it easy to find other classic spades players and to promote the the classic game of spades to the metroplex. We welcome all skill levels from complete beginner to advanced.
We usually meet at least once every 5 weeks, usually twice. Our preferred place to play is IHOP. This is because of the good quality food, location, and best of all they never close so we can usually play as late as we want. Other locations will also be used.
I do not charge membership fees but will appreciate if you can donate $1 per meetup event to help cover my expenses.
About the organizer: I have been playing the Spades for decades. I am familiar with most variations. I enjoy teaching/coaching new players.
